Are You in Houston and Considering a Breast Lift?
As in breast augmentation, breast lift surgery can improve the body contour and balance breast size irregularities. Also known as mastopexy, a breast lift reshapes and firms the breast by removing excess skin. Some women choose this surgery to enhance the appearance of loose breasts caused by excessive weight loss or after having children.
The Breast Lift Procedure
A surgeon elevates the entire breast, including relocating the nipple and areolas (the surrounding pigmented skin), removes excess skin from the lower breast, and then reshapes the remaining skin. Some women choose to have implants in conjunction with a breast lift to increase breast volume. The procedure generally takes two hours to complete.
After Houston Breast Lift Surgery
Physicians suggest reducing upper body activity for 7 to 10 days. Scars are permanent, but may become less noticeable over time. Results generally last 10 to 15 years.
